I have a bottle now that was prescribed yesterday to my 8 month old. It states on the bottle that refrigeration is preferable but not required.

twhumphr - Are you a doctor? Please explain why you are so confident that it should NOT be given.

Amoxicillin & clavulanate have storage condition that it should be refrigarated, if its not the medicine gets contaminated.

I agree, that is why it says on the label WARNING PLEASE REFRIGERATE. You did not have it in there please discard.
